One of the original founders of Acclaim Entertainment has said that Microsoft Kinect and Sony PlayStation Move tech will appeal to hardcore gamers.
Tech? Yes. Games? Move - Yes Kinect - Pending
Tech? Maybe Games? Potentially Move? Yes Kinect? LOL
No kidding, the thought of kinect being for "hardcore" players is just laughable.
Kinect WILL be implemented into hardcore games eventually, but it will be used with a controller only for gimmicky in game tasks. Without buttons the limitations are just too much for any kind of depth in game.
i dont understand how are they going to do that with no first party studios.. sinces games need to be on both ps3 and xbox i doubt any developer will be willing to do that
By the time Kinect is implemented into hardcore games (if ever), it will be too late. They will have already lost the hardcore market. When a new tech product is released, it generally sells the most volume and then levels or drops off. (with one notable exception being the Wii)
If either become hardcore the population of hypocrites in gaming will more than triple. we can go back in the n4g time machine and read a lot of move and kinect supporters and see how they felt about motion in the beginning. honestly nothing has changed besides some tweaks here and there. whats the purpose of articles like this. The big picture of selling out gaming soul for casual pie. worst gen ever.
come on seriously .. kinect and move will appeal to hardcore come on if wii of all consoles which has casual reaking all over it .. was able to try and invite hardcore titles like conduit to it as a hardcore title how much more the 360 and ps3 which is hardcore central.. kinect and move will have a casual fleet of games at launch but as the product is bought by more ppl 3rd party devs will surely without a dout make some serious hardcore titles on those peripherals.. that is fact.... coz alot of them are thinking of creating something new and something hardcore audience would eat up.. and would be something fresh..
MOve has already shown that they have functionallity with "hardcore games"(socom 4, LBP, KZ3) Kinect has not shown anything that remotely even looks like it has that kind of capabilites.
Hmm, I'm sorry but I'm not sure. i think Sony has more reasearch and experience behind this than Microsoft, so I think I'll go with MOVE for my PS3. The 360 kontroller will have to do on it's own.
Well there are better chances that move will appeal to the hardcore. sony has actually showed footage with top rated games. (KZ3)
Don't forget Socom at launch
The launch titles for Kinect aren't appealing, but once we see more innovative games like Child of Eden I will be excited. Seriously the Move launch titles are, for me, more appealing. However I'm not in a rush to pre-order either of them
lol how many articles do we need on this already, no matter how many of them get posted, move wins without even a battle, it does hardcore and casual and kinect functionalities, so you actually don't need kinect at all.
Move appeals to hardcore gamers in taste if games but I'm still not going to bother, I like using a controller for my FPS titles. Kinect wont appeal the the hardcore crowed until someone figures out how to create a game which can use it and still be a hardcore title.
O boy . I just dont uderstand why they just couldnt resist trying to eat into the wii's market share. I actually think its a foolish move because a good percentage of those "new" gamers that were drawn in by the wii will evolve to want more complex games . So Microsoft and Sony in my opinion are working backwards.
Is anyone on n4g seriously going to buy kinect for their own personal use?
I be using it with my kids why? Just because I like to play games like u and most people oin this site, doesn't mena I don't like to have fun with my kids.
yes of course, but had you no kids you would not be buying this, correct? It's why I added own personal use.
That picture in the article says it all.
LMAO! So true. Kinect = casual. Move = Casual + hardcore.
No. They won't. Give me a controller.
I would rather have a controller over Move and Kinect anyday
MOVE will, Kinect is just crap period.
Not to this hardcore gamer they don't.
Well I can't list any hardcore Kinect Game. Reason Kinect is limited to very casual games. Who in the right mind would play a shooter pointing your finger at the screen, or drive a car with no steering wheel, gas pedal or brakes. Exactly, the whole Kinect concept sucks. It's only the brainwashed bots that don't see it. I can list a few MOVE ones: Resident Evil 5 Socom 4 Sorcery RUSE Heavy Rain Killzone 3 MOVE on the otherhand can do both casual & Hardcore games of all genre's. MOVE is limited only by imagination, not lack of hardware, lack of buttons & triggers.
I am still waiting for Kinect to have a good hardcore title. Come on M$ you can do it! You got the money. Dont let Sony pwn you in hardcore titles for motion games. M$ you could make it were if you tilt the 360 controller or twist it does stuff like the DS3.
Sorry but the 360 Controller is just that... a Controller, not a Motion Controller like the DS3.
I'm sick and tire of the same BS, move on PPL!! we all know about the Kinect and Move!! so.. whats new!! ughhhh.
I'm a core gamer and Kinect certainly doesn't but I'm hoping MS changes my mind. Move intersts me but I need to see it in more games. Put Move controls in MGS Rising and I'm sold.
I enjoy most games like most of u guys here. Well, the ones that play games and don't live on this site 24/7. Just because I like my Halos, Killzones, Uncharteds, Mass Effect games doesn't mean I can enjoy games with my kids. I played games since back in the ZX Spectrum days and that was fun. One day you'll have kids and you'll want to introduce them to gaming. Thats where the real fun is, playing with your kids, be it on your PS3, Wii or 360. I have no desire to buy Move for my PS3 as I have a Wii, Kinect is a wait and see for my 360. I want to see how good and fun it is for my kids, not myself, for my kids. I could care less if Kinect doesn't have hardcore games. If I want to play hardcore games, I have a controller. Fanboys love to hate, you think that N4G is the meaning of life. Wake up, you guys are a tiny minority of people that play video games
Hardcore Fans will buy Kinect but will be dissapointed when they find out there arent any Hardcore games for it. They Already Confirmed that Halo Reach and Gears 3 will not use Kinect and Developers are not willing to work with it example the Devs of RUSE.
